90-Year-Old Scares Off Home Invader With Firearm

An elderly resident of Youngstown, Ohio, heard knocking on his front door, but he ignored it because it was after midnight. Shortly afterward he was alerted by the sound of glass breaking on his enclosed back porch. The 90-year-old resident secured a .357 Magnum and fired one shot in the direction of the home invader.

The suspect fled the premises before police arrived and is currently being sought. The resident—who would likely have been easily overpowered if not for his possession of a firearm—was not injured.
